Whose Bird? Men and women commemorated in the common names of birds

Bo Beolens & Michael Watkins

Was Bonaparte's Gull named after Napoleon? Was the Pallas in Pallas' Warbler the same individual as the discoverer of Pallas's Sandgrouse, and if so did he discover the two birds at the same time on the same journey? Whose Bird? answers these questions and many more by presenting a potted biography of every individual who has given their name to a species of bird.

2,235 birds and 1,124 individuals are covered. This is a wonderful and engaging reference, illustrated throughout with portraits of the individuals concerned and line drawings of the birds that bear their names. 400 pages.
